Here Is What UDA MP Hon David Sankok Has Announced To Do After Quitting Politics

David Sankok, a candidate for the seat of MP, has declared his exit from politics.

In an interview with Spice FM on Monday, Mr. Sankok stated that he will not be running for any elective office in the upcoming elections in August in order to concentrate on his own businesses.

"Choosing to contest is a personal choice. This time, I made the decision not to apply for any elective positions. I need to concentrate on my businesses because I became involved in the advocacy of people with disabilities at a very young age, and I never had time to grow as a person.

However, the candidate for the National Assembly seat representing Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) made clear that he would continue to fight for the group's rights.

"If you've been following the debates in the House of Commons, you've probably noticed that I consistently get to debates on time and leave after the Speaker. I never arrive late because I don't want to miss an opportunity to bring up the issue of people with disabilities. For three years, I was acknowledged as the male MP with the best performance "said Mr. Sankok.

The lawmaker added that politics has cost him money and that he has experienced severe frustrations since entering active politics in 2017.

Mr. Sankok has been a staunch supporter of William Ruto, the deputy president, and the UDA party.

Following the alleged suicide of his 15-year-old son earlier in May, he is currently being charged with improper firearm storage.
